Gender-Specific Extended Care for Women
Granite House for Women is a drug rehab extended care facility for women ages 18 and up and is situated in historic downtown Concord, New Hampshire. Granite House for Women is a structured and supportive extended care facility that helps women build life skills and maintain sobriety after primary drug rehab. The program employs a unique three-phased approach that helps clients continue 12-Step work, develop life skills for career and daily living, and promote a smooth transition back to fully independent living. Granite House for Women provides a vital extension of the support started in residential treatment and allows clients to implement the lessons and skills learned there.
Our Three-Phased Program
Phase 1: Continued 12-Step Immersion and Clinical Therapy
In Phase 1, clients begin building a solid foundation for recovery with a full weekly schedule that includes participation in 12-Step meetings and workshops along with various house meetings and group sessions. Clients also benefit from peer sponsorship, access to a gym, yoga, meditation, and other group activities.
Phase 2: Building Real World Life Skills
In Phase 2, life skill-building lessons are introduced including money and time management, resume building, employment and interviewing advice, and career opportunities.
Phase 3: Preparing for Independent Living
In Phase 3, lessons and skills are put to the test as clients are encouraged to implement them in real world situations. Clients in Phase 3 take on regular work, run groups with peers, mentor new residents, and participate in groups focused on developing additional skills needed to re-enter mainstream society.
This three-phased approach challenges clients to meet multiple short-term goals in order to build the skills needed to achieve and sustain sobriety. Each success in discipline, decision-making, and problem-solving contributes to the client’s new self-concept, outlook on their own potential, maintained sobriety, and inner strength.
Clients at The Granite House for Women participate in meditation, yoga, and gym time. Indoor and outdoor sports and team-based activities are a part of the holistic program as well. Clients also participate in experiential/adventure-based activities like skiing, snowboarding, rock-climbing, paintball, and basketball. Team-based experiences such as these help build trust, strengthen peer relationships and hone individual problem-solving skills — all of which serve to strengthen mind, body, and spirit.
